This is a culinary herb that has clusters of small creamy daisy-flowers with aromatic, mid-green, toothed leaves. As a culinary herb its mild flavoured leaves can be used in soups, stews, vegetables, chicken and egg dishes.
In the Middle Ages it was used as a stewing herb to repel insects such as moths, lice and ticks and spread a good smell in private rooms!
Not to be confused with the spice called mace which we did!
